Michael Richards, blacks and racist language

Ermias Alemayehu:

After comedian and former Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards spewed racial epithets and called a black heckler a "nigger" during a stand up comedy routine, the backlash of criticism has been overwhelming. Richards appeared on David Letterman's "Late Show" Monday night to apologize for his tirade. Richards' apology wasn't enough for the Rev. Al Sharpton and others blacks, who have refused to accept it. Conservative author and columnist Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson issued the following statement calling for an end to racial double standards - and challenging blacks to stop keeping the words "nigger" and "nigga" alive. The following is an excerpt of Rev. Peterson's statement:

"What Michael Richards did was wrong and he's already paying a price for his angry outburst. Richards has since apologized for using the infamous 'N' word, and for the rage that fueled his tirade.

"If the word 'nigger' is so offensive and shocking to blacks, then why do black people themselves continue to use this word? The word is kept alive by black comedians and rappers, and is a part of the everyday language and fabric of the pseudo 'black culture.' Yet, whites are forbidden from uttering this word.

"A growing number of white Americans feel as though they are forced to wear a politically correct muzzle when it comes to discussing race issues. Whites are growing increasingly frustrated about being labeled 'racist' whenever they disagree with blacks.

"Black people cannot continue using this word, yet label others as 'racists' when they do the same in a fit of anger, as Michael Richards did. By not allowing whites to express themselves, it only drives the problem underground and forces people to keep these emotions bottled up - in essence, the politically correct culture is helping to create people like Michael Richards!"

By the same token, gentiles should be allowed to criticize Jews and Israel without having to worry about being labeled anti-Semitic.

Few Black leaders speak out on Richards’ racist tirade

Dept. of "Huh?"

One thing to remember about kramer's comments is that 50 years ago, black people were not the ones hanging black people from trees, it was White.we still remember even through we are told to forget, we will never forget the crap we had to go through in this country.

Then why not go back to Africa if life in America is so hard for blacks?

Why should American blacks "go back to Africa"? They've never been in Africa. America is their home, and has been for hundreds of years. Regarding being "told to forget" - rubbish. There is no dearth of modern day hand wringing whites and Al Sharpton-esque blacks reminding black people every day of their right to be professional minorities. Ironically, elderly black people, who have a right to be angry,are generally incredibly gracious. It's young black people, whom white America has bent over backwards to coddle and apologize to, who make life so difficult - not that white people are allowed to notice - and it's happening right now, not fifty years ago.

If blacks don't like it here, they should leave. I'm a young, educated, white professional and I do think niggers (I have no problem using this term) should go back to Africa. Pronto. Not only would it improve Africa, but it would leave America a better place too.

Well anonymous and I am speaking as a professional Black person why don't Whites return to Europe so the Native Americans can have their land back? Ummm I have no problem with you using the term especially when you hide behind a sheet -- i mean a post. America has been built by a multiracial, multicultural and multinational group of individuals. Any one group who takes credit for it not only shows their ignorance but their fears as well. Bless you my child and get the testicular fortitude to handle the whole truth.

Because they commit way too many crimes and blame their lack of success on "racism" instead of on their low IQ's.

Wrong. America was built by whites. All Blacks have contributed has been their high crime rates.

Blacks in America represent the greatest scourge, the most incredible drain, on any society in the history of human kind. This country would run like a clock without all the hindrance from the blacks. Please, Blacks of America, go back to the Motherland! You would look so much more natural wearing chicken bones in your noses again than gold chains and basketball jerseys.

It really kills me the way some of you ignorant gentiles have the nerve to feel superior. Why? You benefit from over 300 years of free labor. Your forefathers committed some of the most wicked act against humanity the world has ever seen. You have stolen 90% of everything you own as a country. But enjoy, "until the time of gentile is fulfilled". Law of nature - you reap what you sow. Did you not know the stench of your fathers sins would reach the Heavens? Be prepared to suffer the wrath of the Most High that was promised in the word. Then we will see who's doing the whining. Until then keep enjoying your country! OK

Actually, Jews have played a major role in the slave trade throughout much of history. They were particularly involved in the slave trade in Eastern Europe.

White people should say nigger more often. Why can blacks say it but not white people? ( noticed how i didnt put the word" people" infront of blacks) lol. They are all on gubment assistance, they have as many kids as they can so they can get more welfare money to spend on weaves, and drugs, and foties, . I like how mentally retatred white people can have a job but a.perfectly healthy monkey is too lazy to have a job. They are ruining this country. Obama is not martin luther king reincarnated.. im so sick of all this nigger empowerment. Dont worry. It will be over soon
